1. GODS KINGDOM FAMILY OF DIVERSITY – By Ron McGatlin
Families are beginning to be drawn to come together and be brought back into God’s true order as the basic model for all governance and production in the kingdom of God.
Adversity and lack of wellbeing are negative factors that are being used as a trigger toward changing the hearts of many people. The stress, loneliness, sadness, and confusion of disorder turns the hearts of people to seek God’s order in life. The experience of love relationships is necessary for abundant, peaceful, and meaningful life.
A mighty move and work of the Holy Spirit can, and I believe will, pour the love of God into the broken hearts and malformed lives of confused souls unattached from the mores of God’s solid foundations of life, floating about in a turbulent sea without direction with no compass to guide and no true map to follow. (Ephesians 4:13-16)
The love of God flowing by the Holy Spirit into broken and seeking hearts will bring God’s wisdom and power to find the way into connection with the family order of God, working through every person supplying the need and stability of family.
The greatest fruit and evidence of the fullness of the Holy Spirit in a human being is love, the tangible presence of the captivating, life-changing, all-consuming love of God.
“Now hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out in our hearts by the Holy Spirit who was given to us.” Romans 5:5.
All creation is ordered and fits together by the love and wisdom of God. All disorder and malfunction in this world stems from a lack of the manifest functioning realty of the love and wisdom of God.
A MAJOR MOVE OF GOD
Perhaps the greatest move of God is the reconnection with the family of God in heaven and on earth: the reestablishment of the loving strong families of fathers, mothers, children, and extended families of two or three generations ordered and led by the powerful reality of Holy Spirit empowering the order of love.
The Holy Spirit is pouring pure holy love of Christ Jesus upon and within His prepared people to destroy the works of the enemy and reorder the earth.
“For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” 1 John 3:8.
People are being drawn to connect in loving families. The diversity of gifts and callings will no longer lead to divisions within the family. Love will fit all the parts together in place to serve the body as each part is designed to do and be.
GOD’S FAMILY PATTERN
God has established patterns of life and order for all creation. God has appointed His Son Christ Jesus the King to be head of the many Sons that Jesus is bringing to glory to order the earth with the power and wisdom of the love of Father God by the Holy Spirit. (Hebrews 2:10).
The enemy of God’s people has caused the earth to be filled with the fatherless, orphans, and widows. The powerless religious systems that steered us away from the true fullness of the Holy Spirit have robbed us of the practical experience of the reality of our Father abiding in and with us through Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit.
Where are the fathers and husbands? Where are the powerful Spirit-filled loving bulwarks of strength and guidance for our lives?
Psalm 68 speaks of God being a Father to the fatherless
“A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows,
Is God in His holy habitation.
6 God sets the solitary in families;
He brings out those who are bound into prosperity;
But the rebellious dwell in a dry land.” Psalm 68:5-6.
The fierce strength and resolve of Almighty Father God imparted into fathers and husbands on earth by the fullness of the Holy Spirit flowing through the love of God into the hearts of men is the strength of family on earth.
As the husband/father is the strength of the family the wife/mother is the heart of the family. The Holy Spirit love flowing into her becomes fierce but tender nurturing and protection for the young children of the family. By the Holy Spirit Christ Jesus is firmly in position as the head of the family.
This is the basic pattern for the governance of families, tribes, and nations unto the entire world.
Without the intact Holy Spirit led and empowered family structure, there will be lack, disorder, and eventual failure of the nation. It will succumb to the counterfeit and evil patterns of the devil and his spirits of darkness.
Life led and empowered by the love of God flowing by the Holy Spirit into the hearts and lives of the people of God is the one way to continued abundant life and order in this world. This is the way of the kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
The aching desire in our hearts is the call of God to come together in family order merged together with God and one another in the pure holy love of God.
Diversity is absolutely necessary for completed family function, prosperity, and survival. There must be differing gifts, callings, and functions that stem from different revealed portions of truth from God by the Holy Spirit.
It is religion and not God that demands conformity to be a part of the family.
THE ONE UNITY IS FATHER GOD IN CHRIST JESUS BY THE HOLY SPIRIT AS LORD, SAVIOR, AND KING OF ALL.
The whole of the God head: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are as one fully active and alive in all of the family of God. Beyond that oneness, diversity of personality, gifts, and callings all working together in love is the way to the glory of the family of God on earth.
FIRST THE FAMILY IN HEAVEN
The desire in our hearts for family must first lead us to be fully and equally joined by Holy Spirit in Christ Jesus to Father God in an intimate holy love relationship. Family begins with the reality of oneness of being literally in love with God as the first and major aspect of our daily lives.
A realistic evaluation of our hearts affection is to look honestly at the time spent in our daily lives. What do we do with our time? Why do we do what we do? What gives us our good feelings within? What excites us? Where do we get a sense of wellbeing? What gives us encouragement and strength? Where does our joy come from in life? What causes us to feel at peace?
Is what we do and the reason we do it the plan and purpose of God for us? Or are inner motives connected to some sense of lack or need to be okay within us, to measure up, or to help us heal from some emotional damage or personal need?
AND LAST OF ALL, HOW DOES ALL THIS RELATE TO MY PART IN THE FAMILY OF GOD IN HEAVEN AND MY GOD-GIVEN NATURAL FAMILY ON EARTH?
Okay, all of those questions are for evaluating purposes only.
NOW THE KEY ANSWER TO ALL OF THIS IS TO HEAR GOD WITHIN LEADING US IN ALL OF OUR ACTIONS AND DIRECTIONS IN LIFE. AND THE ANSWER TO HEARING GOD CLEARLY IS TO BE COMPLETELY FILLED, SATURATED, BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD.
Train yourself, your soul, TO LIVE IN THE SPIRIT AND WALK IN THE SPIRIT.
“If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.” Galatians 5:25.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.” Matthew 6:33.
Love never fails,
Do you crave to find your people and tribe? Do you just want to belong? God placed that desire in you because He has family for you! In this vid,eo I begin to share my heart on what the new wineskin family looks like and why it is so important. If you need healing for any pain or trauma that has stemmed from relational or religious abuse please watch to the end.
One day on the trip, she was walking down the street with her translator and walked past a man who was paralyzed and hadn’t walked in over 20 years. The former LCU student asked for his name and his story. He shared that he hadn’t walked in 20 years and that the doctors told him that the muscles in his legs were completely dead and that he’d never walk again — but Jesus said something different at that moment!
From the glorious magnificent throne of heaven, a sound is being released from the heart of God: for those with ears to hear, a most beautiful sound of an unprecedented love call of God to all mankind, a call to fall completely in love with Him and become His Bride. In heavenly tones the beautiful melody and glorious anthem of the mating call of God is filling the earth with the aching depth of longing for His prepared Bride to leave her fallen earthly ways and be enjoined intimately with Him.
